How to get there

Generator is situated on the Giudecca Island right overlooking San Mark’ Square. It is just 10 minutes from St. Mark's square with the boat. The hostel is situated on the Giudecca Island overlooking Saint Mark Square.
Getting to the hostel could not be easier with the Vaporetto lines (4.1 4.2 and 2) throughout the day and night.
If you arrive by airplane:
BY BOAT - From Marco Polo main airport go to the little harbor (250 mt outside the terminal turn on your left) where you can find the public boat. “Alilaguna” (www.alilaguna.it) which arrives after 1h40min to Giudecca Island. Our stop is called Zitelle. The hostel is 100 mt on your right.
BY BUS - From Treviso Airport - RyanAir or other low-cost flight companies provide private shuttle for passengers who have to go to Venice Piazzale Roma - more details: ATVO
Catch the vaporetto #2 or #4.1 to Giudecca Island & get-off at Zitelle. Cost of boats tickets is euro 7,00 one person one way, but at the ticket offices you can buy 1 or 2 days pass.
BY BUS - Outside arrival terminal bus #5 or ATVO bus to Venice Piazzale Roma – then walk to the public boat standing & catch vaporetto #2 or #4.1 to Giudecca Island & get-off at Zitelle. Cost of boats tickets is euro 7,00 one person one way, but at the ticket offices you can buy 1 or 2 days pass.
TIP! It is always good to get a 24-48 hour pass as it allows you to travel all around the small islands in the laguna (eg Burano, Murano, Lido). Tickets can be bought ONLINE for some extra saving

We suggest to park at Tronchetto - it's a very big car parking. you'll see it driving through the long bridge which connect Venice to the mainland - once you arrive at the end of the bidge at the traffic light turn right & follow the signals (but if you prefer there are other 2 big car-parking in Piazzale Roma). The cost is around euro25,00 per day. If you park at Tronchetto, there is a little way to go to the public boats standing where you can catch vaporetto#2 and in 15 minute you'll get off at Palanca.
If you park in Piazzale Roma (main e terminal station for cars & buses) walk to the public boat standing & get on #2 or #4.1 to Giudecca Island in 20/15 minutes. The stop is Zitelle and the hostel is 100mt on your right.

The staff was SO nice & accomodating! It felt extremely safe. They provided a map and directions into Venice. And it was only €1.25 (one-way) to take the train and in less than 10 minutes you were on the main island of Venice. Would definitely recommend and we'll be back!

I stay in this hostel whenever I travel to Venice. People whose stay lasts up to two days could possibly prefer a hostel based closer to the city centre, given that you need to cross the channel to get to this one.

Great facilities overall, some more clothes hangers in the dorms would be appreciated. Breakfast was a bit disappointing for the price. Great staff, good location, clean. Highly recommended!

Venice is wonderful city. I shocked by such beauty. I have stayed in this hostel for 2 nights. I liked the hostel very much. staff of hostel were very polite. I also liked the location. I bought a ticket for travel on the vaporetto for two days .I visited the islands of Murano and Burano. The breakfast was good for a reasonable price. I recommend this hostel

Hi great time but on arriving very late to the hostel I got to my bed and no duvet or pillow and as was so late and tired I slept without them. In the morning told reception and they said they would sort it out but again the same thing in the evening. This time I had a pillow but still no doubt. The guy from reception did come and sort it but not enough duvets in the cupboard so he just pinched one from another hostellers bed so I suspect she had a chilly broken nights sleep too as I noticed that in the morning she still didn't have a duvet. So more douvets needed at the hostel perhaps.

It is a great hostel in many ways. One thing I think is lacking is being able to get a glass of water or a cup of tea for free. The heat was intense and having to keep buying water was a bit stingy as I would reckon they are making huge profits at the bar. Apart from that it is the best hostel I have stayed in.

Like this hostel very much, enjoyed to stay there. Because I'm a student but with enough money to stay and pay my stay in Venice, it's still very expensive for a hostel. I know it's high season and that the location and facilities a great but for a place called 'hostel' iI think you ask to much.but still good facilities and location but to expensive for staying

Great hostel with lots of services! Would recommend for anyone traveler. We stayed in the 10 bed dorm but there was lots of space and it didn't feel like 10 people were in there. Location is a little far from the train station but close to the main square. There is a discount grocery down the street if youre on a budget.

I found the hostel very clean, the staff friendly and helpful, the entertainment impressive. Although the location is a bit of a distance from the main station, it is close to the main tourist attractions, and situated in a very convenient spot along the Zitelle canal line.

This hostel was the best one that I have stayed in to date! The staff was friendly and available, the rooms and bathrooms were clean and modern and the atmosphere was crazy amazing! I would highly recommend this spot to anyone traveling. I have been trying to duplicate it since I left. If I have a choice, Generator will be my hostel of choice anywhere!
